The LG G3 is official and with it comes at least a few unique accessories, chief among these is the new QuickCircle case. Like the G2’s QuickWindow case, this a windowed case but, as the name implies, this time the opening is circular.

In addition to offering various clock faces that are displayed when the case is closed, there’s also a set of circular icons that can provide a music player, email, a pedometer, your camera, recent calls and more.

Bottom-line, the QuickCircle case is designed to protect your phone while still giving you access to basic information without opening up the front cover completely. Whether you find this accessory a must have or a gimmick probably depends on your own preferences, though based on our time with it, we found it pretty cool.

What do you think of LG’s take on the smart cover, like it or not?
